BurgerFi - Delray Beach, FL

Finally a burger spot that gets it!
Great quality meat, approachable atmosphere, and affordable prices! 

BurgerFi is the second location for this quickly expanding franchise in South Florida & they are doing it right. Huge menu of Burgers (with a create your own menu), Dogs, Shakes, Sides. The line is right behind the counter so you see all the burgers being grilled & the service is quick. Order... Grab your drink... Settle in... and enjoy the BurgerFi Experience!

We started with a classic BurgerFi Cheeseburger: Double Natural Angus Beef, Double American Cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato & their Special Sauce (which was nice and sweet but not too strong).
We then turned our attention to the "Secret Menu." Check out their website... We found a nice selection of items you won't find on the big board inside when you go to order...
We chose the "Urban Fires" from the Secret Menu: Parmesan and herb fries with garlic aioli smothered on top! These were a meal within themselves... Outrageously Good!!!!
Steve & Emma (managers) approached us with a Meat Tasting challenge: They offer 2 types of beef on their menu All Natural Angus & 26 Day Aged Prime Brisket. Which was which...?
You can't taste from the photo but were passed with flying colors.

This is now our favorite local spot! You've got to get down to BurgerFi in Delray Beach (right on the corner of A1A & Atlantic Ave). They have a great selection of Craft Beers! And when you're there, save room for dessert. Their custard/shakes are out of this world... Before they change it up, go try the Red Velvet! We hear theres a coffee/donut flavor coming real soon!

Quickie's - Hollywood, FL

It's always nice to meet up with fellow Burger Bloggers... Sef Gonzalez "The Burger Beast" (@BurgerBeast) met up with me down in Hollywood, FL for one of his favorite spots! It's a shame I don't live closer because now this is one of my favorites. Great choice!

The burgers are never frozen. Made to order. Grilled to perfection.

I had to go with the M.O.A.B. "Most Amazing Burger"
This monster was piled high with Bacon, Fries, Onion Strings, Quickie Sauce and then stuffed with american cheese, yes stuffed, that just shoots out with every bite!
You can't just order a burger here...
The Wings are incredible (try the Beast Sauce)

And if your lucky enough, ask for the Cheese Crisps. WOW! The left over cheese that tops the burgers and is scraped off the grill... Crispy Deliciousness!

And if your REALLY LUCKY... You'll get to try the deep fried brownies!

If your brave enough... enter the monthly "Master the Quickie's TITAN challenge" - A 4 pound fully loaded burger that must be eaten in 1 hour.

Between the Bun - Boynton Beach

Great small atmosphere. Pics all over the wall of customers. Friendly owners cooking & mingling with the customers. Father/Son NY deli owners now making a name for themselves in S Florida making burgers!
Solid 8oz grilled burger! Swiss, bacon, lettuce & onion. May of been a bit well done but the amazing taste of their fresh cut fries made me forget all about it.

My wife and I both ordered bacon and my wife pointed out there was no bacon but they surprised me by putting the bacon under the cheese!!! Well played!You've got to get the Deli style black & white cookie for dessert! 
We walked into an empty restaurant at 12pm but as we are leaving there must be 15-20 people. "It may be hard to find but it's worth the hunt," Palm Beach Post review. I couldn't agree more. A nice hidden gem in Boynton Beach!
